"The Moore Park and Oxford street cycleways sounds great, but the budget is just to have them designed, not built. Lets see before getting too excited.  Not sure I get the point of a cycleway on Houston Rd, its not an arterial. The cycleways…"

"Yes, charm offensive it could well be. I wonder if they will deliver on what they say. And I wonder what the $180m they claim they spent was on, and whether they subtracted M2/M4/college and whatever else they took away"

"Bit of a charm offensive going on here by RMS? Still woefully inadequate spending at around $5 a head of population across NSW. Still, some useful projects there. Might get that roundabout fixed on Todman Avenue just up,from the Supacentre, where…"

http://www.notleysmith.com/nsw-government-funds-new-walking-and-cycling-networks-a-huge-win-for-coogee/Member for Coogee, Bruce Notley-Smith today announced a major boost to walking and cycling connections in the eastern suburbs thanks to a $39 million state-wide investment by the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government. More than 300 walking and cycling projects across the…See More

"That reminds me, Akubras off for Matty Hayman! ( winner of Paris Roubaix for any not into the pain and punishment). Another caveat, I think people have been pinged for not dismounting at those Lang Rd and Driver Rd crossings. A bridge from Moore…"

Paul Jackson replied to JimmyH's discussion The high cost of the useless Moore Park cycle bridge
"In terms of cycling, there are probably higher priorities due to higher volumes and bottlenecks. Such as a ramp at the north end of the Harbour bridge, and a decent path through North Sydney."

non ministrare sed ministrari replied to JimmyH's discussion The high cost of the useless Moore Park cycle bridge
"I suppose we might estimate that $38m costs $3m/year, as if this were an interest calculation. So, the cost of a pedestrian or cyclist crossing is approx $3m divided by the number of crossings per year. "

"I've tried that route and find it easier to instead continue on the Lang Rd/Cleveland St path until South Dowling, and then cross Cleveland and ride through Moore Park until I cross at South Dowling at Parkham to meet up with the Bourke St…"

Carl H replied to JimmyH's discussion The high cost of the useless Moore Park cycle bridge
"The apparent waste of money and the ultimate suspected raison d'être of this bridge aside, I also use this bridge for my nowadays infrequent, commute into the city from the east. Have to say I really enjoy it. Not 100% sure why people say…"

"That's all the very bad history. But it's there now. It does get me across Anzac Pde without stopping...and it's fun to ride."

"I wrote this in 2014 to explain many of the bicycle movement's objections: http://www.smh.com.au/comment/a-25-million-bridge-to-nowhere-20140524-zrn9t.html And I can assure everyone that, now that the bridge is built and open, it is very rarely…"

"Yes.  There is plenty wrong with that bridge.  No clear economic or transport justification.  It was all about politics.  And potentially favours for mates and other dodgy…"

Bob Moore replied to JimmyH's discussion The high cost of the useless Moore Park cycle bridge
"Have to agree it is a bit of a Furphy. Main use claimed was for masses of people leaving the stadiums, for the (seemingly pretty) infrequent Test Matches or big footy matches, all wanting to get away in 10 minutes and using ANZAC pde between…"
